NEW YORK - Catherine Zeta-Jones has some rules about what her children eat.

"I don't give them kid food," she tells Life magazine. "No candy. Almost no juice. When my kids have juice, it's like they're having their first taste of champagne."

Zeta-Jones and her husband, Michael Douglas, have two children, Dylan, 5, and Carys, 2 1/2. "We have a pact that if one of us works, the other doesn't, so the children can have some sense of normalcy," the 36-year-old actress says.

She doesn't cook — "I read about cooking" — and she's not good at watching her children scale the jungle gym.

"I'm always afraid they're going to fall off and break their legs, whereas Michael throws them in the air!" she says.

Now that she's a working mother, Zeta-Jones says she no longer worries about whether she's on the best-dressed lists. As for Douglas, "Every time I look down at his feet, he's always got the scabbiest-looking socks. And he's obsessed with this plastic $2 hairbrush — it goes everywhere with him."

Zeta-Jones won an Oscar for her role in 2002's "Chicago." Her new film, "The Legend of Zorro," also starring Antonio Banderas, opens in theaters Friday.
